We polled a few people to find out what would help them choose a heating and air conditioning contractor. There were only two questions they really wanted to know.
In 1990, Craig Canella founded his heating and cooling business in Bethlehem, NC. A few years later, his brother Curtis joined him and they have been serving Hickory, Conover and the surrounding areas ever since.
Canella Heating & Air Conditioning is licensed in North Carolina to install and repair heating and cooling systems.
Installing HVAC equipment in North Carolina requires a license that’s issued by the State Board of Examiners of Plumbing, Heating, and Fire Sprinkler Contractors. To get one you have to have at least five years of experience and pass a difficult test. Our license number is 15525, H 1, 2 and 3 which allows us to do HVAC electrical, plumbing and heating.
The Board invites you to look up anyone’s HVAC license or talk with them about the performance record of any company you are considering using. The phone number is 919-875-3612 and their web address is www.nclicensing.org.
Service Technicians don’t need to be certified to work in heating and air conditioning, but ours are. They’re certified by North American Technician Excellence, Inc. (www.natex.org). NATE is the country’s premier certification company for heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration technicians.
In addition, all of our employees are required by our company policy to take continuing education classes every year, even our office personnel.
Our interest in energy efficiency goes back to the early days of the company. From the beginning we actively participated in programs like duct sealing sponsored by companies such as Duke Power and Applied Building Science (www.advancedenergy.org). We recognized then that not only would this benefit our customers through energy savings but more importantly it would increase their comfort. And we know it’s awfully hard to put a price on comfort.
(Say what??) That’s a Quality Assured Professional, a designation given to HVAC Contractors who have completed the training and testing necessary to install comfort systems in a home that is to be ENERGY STAR certified. We can help you there too. We have been certified by Advanced Energy (www.advancedenergy.org/QAP).
Building Performance Institute, Inc. (BPI) is a national not-for-profit organization at the forefront of establishing standards and training for improving the energy efficiency of the existing home market (www.bpi.org). Lots of organizations jumped on the green and energy efficiency bandwagon for new homes. BPI recognized that there are 130 million existing homes in this country that don’t fall into that category. Making sure that the improvements are made safely and ultimately provide the results the homeowner is expecting is the goal of BPI. Craig Canella is our BPI Certified Professional on staff.
Our commitment to our company, our customers, and your comfort runs deep. If you still have any questions about our qualifications, our background, or our commitment, please call. We’re waiting to prove it to you.
